Nelson’s ECG review December 2014

  1. Ventricular or junctional beats that retrogradely conduct into AV node may prolong AV conduction, causing a Pseudo-Wenckebach AV block.
  2. HR close to 300 is near impossible, unless if accessory pathway is present. Always suspect WPW in tachycardia with HR that fast !

    Wide complex tachycardia which looks like VT but turned out to be Aflutter with WPW.
